RAIN DATE

by TOBI TOBIAS
the Arts Journal

He knows how to limit his vocabulary so as to lend greater force to the elements he’s selected. He makes already gorgeous dancers look like demigods fit for the glossies, thus appealing in a very contemporary way to the yearning in the spectator to identify with, aspire to, or perhaps to own—if only for a fleeting moment—something of what our current culture recognizes as beautiful.

RAIN DATE
By Tobi Tobias for Arts Journal

Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain is the new ballet that’s making news in the New York City Ballet’s winter season. One of Wheeldon’s bare-bones works, it’s set to a pair of unrelated short pieces by Arvo Pärt, the Estonian composer given to spare constructions in grave moods who is so appealing to today’s choreographers. Three couples—Wendy Whelan and Jock Soto, Sofiane Sylve and Edwaard Liang, Maria Kowroski and Ask la Cour—dance to the first movement of Tabula Rasa; then Whelan and Soto dance as an isolated couple to Spiegel im Spiegel (Mirror in the Mirror).

MR. INTEGRITY
By Tobi Tobias for Arts Journal

At the end of the 2005 spring season, the New York City Ballet’s Peter Boal will retire from the company (and its affiliate, the School of American Ballet, where he has been a leading instructor) to become Artistic Director of Seattle’s Pacific Northwest Ballet. The appointment is undoubtedly good for him at this stage of his career. And it will be good for the Seattle company, which, under the leadership of Kent Stowell and Francia Russell, has built a strong repertory of scrupulously mounted Balanchine works that serve as a bulwark against the corrupted taste of our times.

Embodying Quiet Rapture, Tempered by Piquant Partners

JENNIFER DUNNING
The NY Times
February 5, 2005

Mozartiana," George Balanchine's last major work and the subject of an entire book, is the simplest though subtlest of classics. The ballet, performed by the New York City Ballet on Thursday night, begins like a prayer and ends as formal yet playful dance.

John Rockwell is certainly going to a reaction out of this article...and it's very (too?) opinionated for someone who has just started reviewing ballet...

Today, It's Dance 10, Looks 3

JOHN ROCKWELL
The NY Times
February 6, 2005

I've been thinking about stars lately, seeing a large swath of New York City Ballet repertory, noting young dancers being promoted up through the ranks, perusing the photo display of City Ballet history at the New York State Theater, reading Robert Gottlieb's and Terry Teachout's short biographies of Balanchine, even watching a rare screening of "The Red Shoes" at the "Dance on Camera" series last month at Lincoln Center.

What makes, or made, a star? Not in the heavens, but in the grand old Hollywood-style, diva-ballerina sense? Is it "All in the Dances," as Mr. Teachout entitles his Balanchine book, implying that if someone dances well, that's enough?

In the New York Post, Clive Barnes makes brief mention of recent performances of Jerome Robbins' "Goldberg Variations" and "Fanfare," and discusses other Robbins repertoire:

A Menu of Performances Going From Sinuous to Cute

By JOHN ROCKWELL
NY Times
Published: February 8, 2005

George Balanchine's "Agon" and "Prodigal Son," both masterpieces sufficiently established that they hardly warrant further commentary, were the highlights of Saturday's programs by the New York City Ballet.

So even with a return to the repertory of Jerome Robbins's "Fanfare" after a four-year absence, the news of the day was the dancers, not the dances.

It's Raining Ballets

by DEBORAH JOWITT
the Village Voice

We might be gazing into a slow dream about intimacy. The mirror (spiegel) of the music's title is reflected in the ballet, not by identical poses but by responsive desires.

This is Soto's last season with NYCB. In recent years, he has been lauded mostly for his superb partnering. Not only does he have a gift for making ballerinas look their best, he projects an awareness of the drama inherent in any pas de deux.

NYCB assistant balletmaster and former NYCB dancer Victor Castelli died yesterday. Apparently an announcement was made prior to the curtain at yesterday's NYCB performance.

Castelli was on the advisory board of the Robbins Trust and set many of Robbins' ballets for NYCB and other companies.

I will post more information when an official press release has been posted.

Edited to add that Castelli was 52 and died of pneumonia, as a result of cancer. He'd been diagnosed last October.

Seldom-Seen Works By New York City Ballet Great Coming To Kennedy Center


By Sarah Kaufman
Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, February 6, 2005; Page N20

Quote:
After back-to-back seasons of "Swan Lakes," as well as assorted "Cinderellas" and "Giselles," danced by ballet companies large and small, what a relief it is to look ahead to the New York City Ballet's three programs of short works by four different choreographers, coming to the Kennedy Center Opera House March 2-6.

Anna Kisselgoff talks to NYCB principal dancer, Sofiane Sylve:

Quote:
A Ballerina Born, and Molded, to Balanchine's Art

The NY Times
February 11, 2005

The French ballerina Sofiane Sylve was virtually unknown here when she made her debut with New York City Ballet on Jan. 3, 2003, stunning an unsuspecting audience with her Sugarplum Fairy in The Nutcracker."

The bravos have not stopped since for Ms. Sylve, a 28-year-old dancer of astonishing power and projection whose ultra-clear technique can be traced to a mix of French and Russian training.
Advertisement


Yet she is also considered the perfect Balanchine dancer by an array of ballet masters who stage George Balanchine's works throughout the world.
More

And, the picture gremlin strikes again - for such a prestigious newspaper, the NY Times can be very careless about checking photo captions. The photo is of Sylve in 'Stars and Stipes', NOT 'Cortege Hongrois'.

A Ballet in Three Sections, Each Given a Different Hue

By JOHN ROCKWELL
NY Times
February 12, 2005

George Balanchine's three-act abstract ballet "Jewels" was created in 1967 to provide the New York City Ballet's then-new home, the New York State Theater, with a flashy full-evening showpiece. In that it succeeded. Most American critics applauded the work, although others, especially in Europe, found it disappointing. But it has stayed in the repertory, and Wednesday night it returned after a year's absence.
